RIP Senichi Hoshino

Hall Of Fame pitcher Senichi Hoshino passed away at age 70 on Thursday of this past week.  I wrote an appreciation of Hoshino when he retired as manager in 2014 so I'm just going to show some more cards of him here:

1974/75 Calbee #337

1975 JCM 75 Pepsi Menko

1978 Yamakatsu JY6

2001 Upper Deck #63

2003 BBM Nippon Series #26

2011 BBM 1st Version #136

I got an autograph from Hoshino back in 2010 at the Cal Ripken World Series in Aberdeen, Maryland.
